My 4 yr old son's face has been itching like crazy for the past few days. We will be getting seen at the doctor this week, but I just wanted to check with y'all to see if you've ever had a similar experience. So far he doesn't have any diagnosed allergies.
He has no rash
He does have a cough, which is worse in the early morning
Antihistimines have helped
We haven't switched soap, laundry detergent, bought any new fabrics, or introduced any new foods.
until you can go to a doctor, try the Benadryl still but use 1% Hydracortisone cream for the itching. I had to use that on my sons face when he was a baby when his eczema would break out.
Any bug bites? Check his scalp...
Is he on any medication? I had to take yucky LORTAB when my son bruised my back, that stuff made me itch SO BAD.
Hope he feels better!
I would have taken him to an Urgent Care office if you couldn't get into a Ped office by now.
It can be anything.
Ask about perioral dermatitis. Worth a shot.
